Gene: SLC38A2 (solute carrier family 38 member 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC38A2
Name: solute carrier family 38 member 2
Description: Exhibits neutral amino acid:sodium symporter activity. Involved in several processes, including amino acid transport; cellular response to arsenite(3-); and positive regulation of RNA splicing. Localizes to cytoplasm and plasma membrane; PARTICIPATES IN glutamate signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; 3-isobutyl-1-methyl-7H-xanthine; aflatoxin B1.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: amino acid transporter 2; amino acid transporter A2; ATA2; KIAA1382; PRO1068; protein 40-9-1; SAT2; SNAT2; sodium-coupled neutral amino acid transporter 2; solute carrier family 38, member 2; system A amino acid transporter 2; system A transporter 1; system N amino acid transporter 2
